Last year was a tough one for Miranda Lambert, but the country star is having a pretty great start to 2016.

Over the holidays, the singer, 32, posted an adorable photo of herself snuggling with new boyfriend Anderson East, 27, and a source close to the star tells PEOPLE she’s “doing really, really well.”

The new couple met while working on the upcoming compilation album Southern Family and rang in the new year together at a ski destination.

“She’s happy,” says the source about Lambert, who split from Blake Shelton last July. “She’s looking forward to the new year.”

“I just want to live a life full of everything,” she told Cosmopolitan in a recent interview. “I just love what I do so much. I love songwriting and the road and the family of country music. I love being a female in country music and lifting up other females of country. I’m more in it right now than I ever have been.”
